Thanks to 21andSensory for nominating the blog award. This is my second time receiving this award, and I love awards. It means I’m appreciated and who doesn’t like to be appreciated.
Why I blog?
I started blogging as a place to vent and outlet my feelings. After gaining some followers, I learned about the rich community. I’m diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, a mental illness not too many people know of. Heck! I hadn’t heard of it until I was diagnosed. For those who don’t know it’s a combo of bipolar (in my case) and schizophrenia symptoms. I’m also diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and I think there is a lot of stigma and stereotypes, so I blog to dispel some of those. Along with those two, PTSD has been added to my official list of diagnoses. Not sure why they added that now, since I’ve experienced trauma and PTSD symptoms for a long time. After the last hospitalization, low and behold, I was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder as well. One reason why I enjoy reading the blog that nominated me. I like to spread awareness about mental illness/health as well as who I am as a person. Soon I will be doing a post highlighting some of my favorite blogs I follow, so I will skip the nomination process.
The pretty award:
